From Tree to Furnishings: Manufacturing in the U.S.
We recently acquired a giant tree trunk, and we know we’ll be turning the wood into something fun for Paul’s World. Just look at the potential here!
We’re not only looking forward to transforming this tree, but also love the idea of repurposing old wood and manufacturing here in the U.S. Going local is a concept we’ve been championing at Paul Michael Company for a while, and now many believe there will be a return of manufacturing to the U.S.—and soon.
In fact, a recent article in the Harvard Business Review discusses an upcoming U.S. “manufacturing renaissance,” including the furniture industry as one of the main categories this could affect.
You may also recall that one of 2012’s big decorating trends is that people want more furnishings made here in the U.S.—and that’s exactly what we’re doing with Paul’s World.
